Vantage Cancer Care Network (VCCN) www.mckesson.com has signed an agreement with Alliance Cancer Specialists, PC to expand the delivery of high quality oncology care across the Philadelphia region. Under the agreement, 21 oncologists across eleven locations are joining VCCN to provide seamless and efficient oncology care.
The VCCN operations platform called Carelytics™, a data management and reporting analytics tool, enables VCCN to provide oncology-specific population health statistics, payer opportunity analytics, symptom management protocols, technology support, complex care case management support, and practice transformation tools and training.
VCCN is now able to provide value-based agreements, analytical tools, and process improvement insight to help achieve savings and quality outcomes in a value-based environment to a network of nearly 100 oncologists across 28 locations in the Philadelphia region.
VCCN recognition helps Preferred Providers of cancer care meet the needs of payers, patients, referring physicians, clinically-integrated networks, and accountable care organizations. VCCN also supports the initial Oncology Medical Home (OMH) readiness assessment by having access to OMH proven tools and solutions. The plan is to streamline work flow, improve symptom management triage, improve communications, and patient coordination.
In addition, Cloud-based EMR diagnostic tools support Independent Practice Association (IPA) practices in managing and succeeding on value-based contracts with payers. The payer analytics module enables VCCN to understand historical cancer data across the payers’ entire population.
VCCN then uses the output of the tool to formulate an analysis that shows the opportunity available to the payer when they participate in a VCCN partnership.
